The revolvers of the Korth company are one of the most famous on the market, they stand out primarily for their quality and price, which is far from being as democratic as that of many other manufacturers. The price, as mentioned above, is due to the quality, and, accordingly, the high characteristics of the weapon. Nevertheless, not all of these characteristics are important enough to buy weapons at a price 5-6 times higher than the more common and "popular" models. And speaking frankly, not everyone will be able to fully unleash the potential of weapons, since this requires constant practice and natural inclinations. As a result, such weapons are in demand among athletes and those for whom shooting is a little more than just a hobby.
This year, the company has released two versions of the revolver focused specifically on the sports market. These revolvers are designated National Standard Super Sport STX and ATX, they differ only in the material of the weapon frame.
The appearance of revolvers National Standard Super Sport
Although the beauty of a weapon, and beauty in general, is a subjective concept, one cannot fail to notice that revolvers look, at least, not cheap, although it would seem that what can be done with such a simple design to achieve a similar effect. First of all, the sighting devices are striking, which allow you to adjust, both in the range of fire, and to adjust the clearance between the whole and the front sight. So already only sights say that the weapon is clearly sporting. The grip of the weapon also speaks of "sportiness", the base of which is made thin enough for a confident grip, and there are places for all the fingers of the holding hand. To facilitate and speed up the process of reloading the weapon, the lever that unlocks the drum protrudes beyond the frame, but the trigger spoke seems too small, but here you can draw conclusions only after the weapon is in your hands, which, unfortunately, I cannot boast of.
In some stupor drive the mounting straps, which are placed on both sides of the barrel and in front of the entire weapon. In addition, another attachment bar can be installed under the barrel. It is absolutely unclear for what purpose they are present in such a quantity on the revolver, especially given its sporting bias. It can be assumed that due to the greater weight shifted to the muzzle, the weapon shows higher stability when firing. This is quite justified, since it is unlikely that someone will carry such a revolver every day, which means, in this case, the weight can be relatively large, within reasonable limits. It is worth noting that the mounting straps are a distinctive feature of all the latest revolvers of the company.
National Standard Super Sport revolver characteristics
Revolvers are available in two versions, as the name implies, with a steel frame and an aluminum alloy frame. The STX version has a mass of 1.65 kilograms, the ATX version of the weapon weighs 1.32 kilograms. The rest of the characteristics of the weapon are the same. So, both versions of the revolver have a length of 280 millimeters with a barrel length of 152 millimeters. Powered by a six-chamber drum with.357 Magnum cartridges. The trigger mechanism is, of course, double-acting, adjustable in force and trigger travel. In addition to.357 Magnum cartridges, the revolver can also use 9x19 and.38 Special cartridges, after changing the drum.
In conclusion of this mini-review, I would like to announce the price of this weapon. The company's website lists a price of 3853 euros, while these revolvers cannot be purchased yet. Needless to say, at such a price, the demand will be low, and even among the athletes there will not be so many people willing to purchase this weapon. However, this revolver can still be considered not only as a sports equipment, but also as a status item, and in this context there will be much more people who want to buy it.
